  • poll: What's the truth about your laundry...

    All my clothes are washed immediately after wearing, every single time no matter what!

    I wear jeans ONLY multiple times, everything else is washed immediately.

    Only my underwear is washed after one use.

    I rewear all my clothes several times before doing laundry. It cuts down on wear and tear.

    I only do dryclean.

    I change and wash towels weekly.

    I change and wash towels monthly.

    I change and wash bed sheets weekly.

    I change and wash bed sheets monthly.

    My laundry habits are all over the place to tell t he truth.

    I wash my bedding sometimes twice a week. usually weekly but we let our outside inside dogs sleep in bed with us.

    I try to use towels, jeans hoddies/coats multiple times before washing them.

    also dresses since when I wear them its normally for a short ammount of time and i’m not doing stuff they can get yucky in.

    but things get washed more in the summer too beacuse we are out side more … sweaty more etc=]

    Underwear – change daily (except bras, can get several wears before laundry)

    Other clothing – depends on how it is. Mainly tops get washed after one day of wear. Top layers (sweaters etc) and jeans get several wears. 

    Sheets and towels – weekly but don’t stress out if I go a few days over. 

    All goes through the washer and then line dried. Delicates get washed inside another item (pillowcases etc.). We have a dryer but I hate using it (cost plus it wears clothes out plus environmental impact)

    I wear pants lots of time before washing them.  Basically until they seem dirty or I spill something on them or something.

    Shirts sometimes get worn once, sometimes get re-worn.  It depends on what I’m doing when wearing it.  Cardigans and such that are over other shirts get re-worn.

    I don’t wash my sheets and towels very often.  Probably every 3-4 weeks.

    I follow tag instructions regarding if something gets hand-washed, goes in the dryer or lays flat to dry.

    I do all the laundry in our house- I change the sheets every week. Towels get reused several times before washing, but I used to use a towel only once when I lived in a more humid place.  I wash my clothes usually after one wear, but usually re-wear them if I just put something on for a couple of hours.

    My partner’s clothes are a different story. He wears uniforms at work, which I wash and press whenever they look a little limp or grubby, usually whenever he gets home every four days. His casual clothes have to be stolen and washed while he’s in the shower, because he’d wear them until they stood up by themselves. Luckily he doesn’t sweat much so it’s not a big deal. He’s just really attached to certain items.

     I use a washer and dryer. I’m excited to own my own appliances. I’d prefer to line dry, because our climate is perfect in the summer and fall, but our HOA doesn’t allow this.
